on the street. far different scene yesterday, of course, a lot of union workers very upset about not just this legislation that's going to wipe out a 77-year-old requirement that workers be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment, they are upset also about how this was jammed through the legislature. this was passed in both bodies in four days time and signed by the governor last night. what the advocates of this legislation say is union shops and unions no longer can just depend on fattening up their membership roles by default, they actually have to go out and sell themselves, sell their benefits to the workforce in order to earn those memberships. so we'll see how this all changes. the law will go into effect some time in late march or early april. we don't know what recourse they have. we know they can't challenge this at the ballot box. i asked him why this was rushed through so quickly. he says this was never part of his agenda but organized labor tried to force the issue by putting a constitutional amendment really to enshrine collective bargaining in the state's cons

me just say that the year began with the american republic in grave danger. the union armies struggling to grow virtually overnight from a few thousand men scattered across the continent to more than half a million. the inexperienced officers thrust into command of the raw volunteers were stymied by the sheer size of the break away confederate states of america which covered a space larger than the entire european territory conquered by napoleon. the closest adviser was the secretary of state and said that even smart people failed to see the difficulty of the union's tasks. they didn't apprehend the vast extent of the rebellion as he put it. military operations, to be successful, must be on a scale hitterred to prakically unknown in the war. >> the second year of the war, weak union forces, daifdz von brehle on 1862 and lincoln's rise to greatness at 8:30 eastern this weekend and right through christmas day on c-span2. >> senator daniel of hawaii given a rare honor of lying in state in the capitol rue tun da today. he died sunday in an area hospital. he's the second longest s
